Hey Google Nest Community!

Sling TV voice casting support is now available for Chromecast and displays like Nest Hub and Nest Hub Max. A subscription to Sling is required to stream your favorite shows, movies, news and sports anywhere your device is located. 

What is Sling? 
Sling TV allows you to watch your favorite shows live or stream on portable devices. Watch live football games, don’t miss a float during the Thanksgiving Day Parade, and keep up with breaking news. 

Voice commands
Using a remote to flip channels and pause the TV is so 2018. With Sling now on Nest Hub and Nest Hub Max, you can control Sling with your voice. Just say “Hey Google, watch (pick your favorite channel) on Sling” and instantly start watching. Player controls will also be supported like “play,” “pause,” or “skip forward 10 seconds.” Or impress your friends and hold up your hand to the Nest Hub Max camera to pause or resume content with Quick Gestures

Set up process:
To access your Sling subscription on your new Nest Hub devices follow these steps or download the app through the Google Play or Apple App store: 
  1. Open Google Home app
  2. Make sure you see the code on your Nest Hub or Hub Max
  3. Choose a location for your device 
    1. This will help you name and organize your devices
  4. Connect to Wi-Fi
  5. Google Assistant information will pop up, Click Next
  6. You will be prompted to link services in order:
    1. Music > Radio  > Video > Live TV
  7. Once at the Live TV prompt, Click Sling 
  8. Log into your Sling account
    1. If you don’t have a Sling account, Google can create one for you.
  9. Start watching your favorite shows on Sling!

To access your Sling subscription on your current Nest Hub devices:
  1. Open Google Home app 
  2. Go to the settings page for Video providers
  3. Find and select Sling TV and follow the prompts to link your account. 

Sling. Watch. Repeat.

I’m using Google Home iOS version 2.15.517 and I don’t see a way to add sling.  Under Settings | TV and Video | Video, I only see Netflix, hbo now, cbs, Viki, YouTube kids, and starz.

I too am not seeing Sling as a video service within the Google Home app on iOS.

Hi, I linked my sling service but every time I say "Hey Google, play (channel) on sling.".  Google's response is always, "To play that, you need to have a premium subscription.". Can you please help?
